POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. (AP) -- Chuckie Looney threw five touchdown passes to lead Marist over Jacksonville 42-35 on Saturday.

Looney was 26-of-36 and 362 yards. He holds the Red Foxes' career records for passing yards, passing touchdowns, completions and attempts. Atiq Lucas rushed for 122 yards and a touchdown on 19 carries. The win puts Marist (6-3, 5-1 Pioneer) in a 3-way conference tie for first place with Sand Diego and Butler.

The Marist defense blunted five consecutive Dolphin drives in the first half. But Jacksonville (4-5, 3-3) came alive with just over two minutes left in the second quarter on a pair of touchdown passes by Kade Bell on back-to-back possessions, one for 93 yards and another for 14 yards to knot the halftime score at 21-21.

Looney answered with three more touchdowns in the second half, two to game-leading receiver Armani Martin, frustrating the Dolphins' attempts to tighten the score.
